    Does Directv still discount or give freebies for Sunday Ticket if you call in? Looking for any feedback.

    I have paid full price for NFL Sunday Ticket for years. Never gotten any sort of discount. Next Year I am going to try to get it free. I have already paid for it this upcoming season. I feel like next year I should be one to get a break on it.

    I feel you dude. I been with DTV for 17 years. I cancelled ST 3 years ago. But with the loss of CBS I’m thinking of trying to get it free. If I can’t I’ll probably be leaving DTV. Honestly I loved DTV when I first got it, but it has sucked the last 2 years and my bill keeps going up.

    I like DirecTv but i dont like dealing with them. I've never had sunday ticket but i talked to Channel Choice and they are setting the whole thing up for me. I dont know if you have a Channel Choice where you are but they actually do all the negotiating for me. I was with Cox before and everytime my bill was about to go up they would shop around for me to find something in my budget.

    Yeah, I feel the same way. Never thought I'd be willing to give up D*, never thought there would be anything better. Now it seems like it's an anachronism. Evolution.

    If you look at forums for "all" the tv providers you find many of the same comments. There are many options today and some fit some and the same won't fit others. Yes expensive they are but some of that is due to sources (CBS or example) wanting more and more money. Yes, it is too bad. Of course you could go back to the old days with only an antenna, no dvr and only 4 or 5 stations.

    I have been with them since 2011 and haven't been able to get it for free since the 1st year's deal. I have had 1 year I think I got it (the Max) for $99 but think that was a deal they were giving because of all the calls & for those of us not successful enough to get it for free. One year I think it was $150 that I got it for, but for a lot of us it is a huge struggle. And with me, my husband calls & usually gets a bigger discount than I do. What they typically do is offer monthly credits for a year that will offset the cost. Like last year they would only give me $12.25 off ST but gave me $70 in monthly credits for a year. This year, so far, they have only taken off $3 in Whole Home credit.

    For me, the only reason I stay with Directv is for the ST. But I don't want to pay what they charge when I know they will give it to people for a lot less. And we pay a lot each month for equipment we will never own & over the years that adds up to thousands of dollars. If I can't get it for even $10 less a month I may not get it & if I have to go back to the days of listening to games or watching the helmets & football move across the computer then I will cancel Directv since at this point their prices aren't competitive, which means I am overpaying them for the same stuff I can get from a different company.

    I have now called three different times and even spoke to Loyalty and still are being being offered Nothing. As a 25 year subscriber you would think they might at least give me some discount of my regular programming in not ST.
    Last year I got ST Max for free and $15/mpnth for 12 months. Not the best deal ever but I thought things were bad last year.

    Any ideas?

    I know I don't know the secret but know that in the past they have given my husband better discounts than me. This year I have gotten almost $200 in bill credits as a one time only thing, which has never happened before. I have tried the whole "I am trying to lower my bill, don't want to lower my package anymore because what is the point of staying with Directv?" Last time I told them I could get everything bundled with Spectrum and pay $20-40 less and was given $40 but no recurring discount. The worst part is every year I do this crap for last 3 years and my husband hates calling, doesn't want to do it but he gets better offers. We fight, I get pissed, he digs in his heels...

    Really can't blame your husband, I don't like the idea of calling these...people...either. Upsets me just thinking about it. But, I really should call and get some credits. Don't mind paying for the ST. Rather not, but I can live with it.

    LOL. Yeah, I hate calling too. But he shouldn't. He usually gets a really good deal with 1 call and doesn't really say much. Lol

    I’m a 21 year customer and had $50 monthly credits expiring this month. I made my annual call to see if they would at least extend the credits. Was told there were no promotions available to me so I told them to cancel. They sent me to customer loyalty where they simply confirmed they couldn’t do anything for me. I told them to cancel me as of the end of my current billing cycle and it took about 30 seconds for them to process that.

    In contrast, my son, who has been a previous customer recently moved. He called to see what they could do for him. They treated him as a new customer and gave him a base package for $45 per month for a year and free Sunday Ticket.

    It’s clear that this company no longer values long time customers but will literally give service away to new ones. It’s hard to understand why they think these giveaways and free installs to new customers somehow offsets the benefits of retaining existing customers but I guess that’s why they’ve lost well over a million subscribers so far this year.

    Wow. Did you tell them that? Their policy is stupid. Last year I had to drop my package to get discounts. They gave me $75 a month on top of that for a year. So for 6 months I paid $40 a month and the other because of ST I paid $80 a month. I was paying around $120-130 for Premier. All I wanted was another $100-170 off ST. Not a smart move on the company's part. Even now I want ST free and they have given almost $200 off so far. Stupid.

    And these same customers they care about are the same ones who will be us in a couple of years. Did I already mention stupid?

    So I just got off the phone after trying Chat and getting nowhere. Well they did offer me 1 month of Showtime, 6 months of the Movie Pack, and I think the Sports package. I said no thanks. They had me call 888-666-0027 & said that was Loyalty. I got a $35 credit off my bill. He said that with the discount rolling off this month the system hasn't generated a new deal yet, but he did say that people who call in a lot get flagged. He said some people get offers & still aren't happy so they call back everyday and lose their loyalty points. I thought that was interesting. Anyway, he said to call back around start of season and add it back, hopefully there will be offers. So with the $35 they have basically paid for the ST for me. My next goal will be the $12.25 discount. I will be satisfied with that, not happy. I will see if hubby can do better.

    That number, 800-666-0027, led me to a telemarketing scam. Been there before.
